agreed, wont happen. Jedi would be playable with the dark side and highly overcosted. Any we get will be republic even if the republic really doesnt exist any more. I wouldnt be surprised to see a rebel jedi as well. Would be a pretty cool addition as we only have Obi, Luke and Yoda in the faction normally.

I will also add, the info Erik gave us suggests Episode 5 minis as well. I mean come on, Rebel Troop Cart, Ugnaught leader, Hoth pack. You see a pattern yet? :)

You missed a rather big one: Luke w/Yoda.

IMO, I don't think the Rebels should have any Jedi other than Luke, Obi, and Yoda. I do remember hearing a rumor of a new Rebel Obi though...

What about Echuu Shen-Jon? That would be a nice Jedi for the Rebels.

I think he was. Here's the exact quote from 3/19/07:

Happiness is working on a Star Wars Miniatures set with all 10 factions represented!


(Love the search function!)

The timeframe would indicate finishing up FU or starting LotF given that there's some overlap.

Who? Really, the Rebels really shouldn't have any more Jedi than the three. And even the, Yoda really shouldn't be a fighter.

The rebels SHOULDN'T have more jedi than the old jedi order, but having some surviving jedi from order 66 is good for the faction.


As for echu, he should be republic, with affinity for the rebels.

That sounds about right. I still think it's more likely to be the Legacy set though. We'll see I guess. Though, based on the 'spoiler' thread recently started about the poster that someone supposedly found, FU does not have all 10 factions. We'll see.

The time frame they work on is about 6-12 months out. The odds that the 10 faction set was FU to me was always wishful thinking. I have never thought Rob was referring to FU in that statement. Plus, as we know, LFL has final say on every figure in the set. Its easy to imagine that at any time a figure could go away or be replaced by something else. So its highly possible we will never see this set with all 10 factions - as inevitably several factions would only be receiving 1-2 minis anyways.

Actually, from the apparent leak, what I am leaning toward is that the decision to make a Force Unleashed set was relatively short. That or LFL interfered again and got rid of some of the stuff, because Rob was quite certain that all factions would get representation this year. The 10 factions did seem likely to be after the Nov set to me as well.

It could also be because of the slots needed for the game, FU isnt the set where that starts.

I still think every set should have something from every faction. Even if it is only 1 piece like the NR has gotten lately.

This set. I still think Force Unleashed inclusion sort of threw Rob's original plan. Since there are no Mandos, and he said a long time ago all factions would be represented this year.

Are we sure the "apparent leak" is accurate? I am a little dubious and so I hold out hope there will be something for everyone.

If then leak has been confirmed then please ignore this post.

Well, the figures that the "leak" have confirmed have apparently been confirmed by a secondary source. But I haven't seen anything at all yet confirming the absence of OR and/or Mandos in this set. I think it's highly possible that the guy who leaked the info to start with just either isn't remembering exactly what he saw, or he isn't recognizing characters on the poster as Mandos. Because, IIRC, the posters show the faction on them, but it's usually in the fine print below the image, would could be easy to miss or just not remember. We'll see. I really want some more Mandos. :(

It is quite possible. I just can't wait till someone with a scanner gets a hold of it.

Me too. Not just to further confirm the stuff already mentioned, but to get a look at all the unmentioned C/UC pieces.

Well, I think it's official now. The lull has ended. :D Well, for those of us who don't care about spoilers, lol.

It would be nice to get stats, though. Hopefully it will be a full week this week.
